I recently bought a kill a watt, to double check my power usage in the printers. Kinda cool to know.
So 6 Mp3DP printers, all running insulated heated beds @ 63C and 218C hot ends. 68-70 degree room for an average 24 hours worth of printing. Came out to 10.3kWh, so for me that is about $2.55 per day in electricity costs. Neat, lower than I thought.
All 6 at rebooted sitting idle consume ~42W, higher than I expected. All heating up bed and nozzle, almost 1000W. During printing it said anywhere from 200-600W, mostly between 250-450W. Much higher than I thought.
Just thought I would share, anyone that sees my “farm” that is the first question asked usually.
